Conjunctivitis - March 29th 2010, 06:11 PM

My friend has it and I'm going over his house tomorrow ¨____¨ I heard it's really easy to catch :/ Basically how likely is it that I'll catch it? Obviously if I done something like poked him in the eye then poke myself in the eye or whatever I'd deff. catch it I will just try and be cautious.

I think that if you are cautious and practice basic hygiene then you will be pretty safe from catching conjunctivitis from another person. Make sure that you wash your hands and avoid touching your eyes. Also, don't share towels if there's a possibility of that happening. Try not to worry about it and have a good time!

Take care!

Just keep your fingers away from his eyes and your eyes. Also, it would be a good idea to wash your hands frequently.
